I tried posting a few more pics in a new thread but couldn't do it as yet,... will try again soon.
Standox is (i think) the best paint available out ther right now, but it all depends on the painter and the conditions. Best advice is to get the whole car stripped (chemical) and have it bake painted. My beetle costed me 20,000 for a chemical strip and bake paint (standox).
The beetle actually was a 1200 but I was planning on fitting a more powerful unit at a later date (had a friend looking for a flat 6 in peshawar) or maybe some forced unduction. I swear if you see it now it looks horrible with that floppy roof on it.
